Uggggggggh! Your stories make my skin crawl!
My sister and I have been telling my older brother he should try online dating for a long time. He was really reluctant, but one night he got into a conversation with a bunch of female acquaintances where they were complaining about all of the weirdos they've encountered on online dating sites. Strangely enough, that was the push he need to join eHarmony, because in his words, "I'm a lot less of a loser than all of the guys they've met online!"
I told him the fact that he's looking for a woman close to his age is certainly something that sets him apart from a lot of the guys out there!
